this applies to so much more than fitness and weight loss. this applies to life.
this is exactly what i’ve been thinking lately.
A: LIFE, MOTHERFUCKER. Or, you know, maybe not as emphatically as all caps, but it’s 7:40, I’m only halfway through my first cup of coffee, and I want to scream that at most people right now. Morning person? Me?
But I was leaving the gym last night and it suddenly dawned on me how absolutely…
So here’s a little positivity for you today
No matter how slow you’re going, no matter how little progress you feel you’re making, you’re still doing SOMETHING.
I didn’t think I’d made any progress. I wasn’t seeing any changes the last three weeks, I wasn’t feeling any different.

With mom: Gotta take things one step at a time and I’ll get it done, break it down into reasonable sections or goals, ask for help and be resourceful.
Mantras: Focus on what you’re doing right then and how that can be the best it can be.
See a theme here?
So happy I saw this today.
TRUTH! That was me last night. Running around at work all day, walking the dog a solid 40 mins, then more work at night… Asleep by 10:30 without a “real workout”.
